Trading method for people who don’t have a ton of coins

Hey everyone! This was going to be a comment reply within the Market Advice thread but its so long that I figured it would be good to make it its own post. This is a method I have used since the beginning of FUT that has worked out pretty well for me thus far in 15. Here goes!

fifa 15 player

Research a few different players, preferably someone you can afford to have 20-30 of (without financially crippling you–unless you dont need the coins for anything) at any given time:
1) Find their lowest BIN using
2) At what price point to people seem to be bidding at? For example–Muntari (Serie A CDM) – his lowest BIN on psn is 750, and if you do a search for him on the transfer market, it seems like most people (or bots) are bidding between 600-650. If there is some wiggle room between the bidding point and lowest BIN, this could be a good option for mass bidding. If not, you might have to try a different player.
3) Conduct a new search using MAX PRICE (not max BIN) at the price point you discovered in point 2. If you get a lot of results, go ahead and mass bid on the results at the price point from point 2. Bidding at this price will ensure the other person/people mass bidding don’t just outbid you–sometimes they will anyways but that might just mean you have to raise your bid price a tiny bit. Most of the time though, if you can lock in a bid at the price they are also bidding at, it will discourage them from bidding on that particular player all together. If you find that you are being outbid before you can enter your bid, try advancing a page or two–there might be someone bidding at the same time.
4) The more you bid on, the more you will win. List the players you win a little above lowest BIN–use your own discretion. If my player is 1k or less, I want to be making at least 100-200 coins profit on them. At the 5k range maybe 500-600 coins profit, and so on and so on. Do not fall under the impression that people only buy at lowest BIN. There are tons of lazy players who will not put the effort into searching for the lowest price and that is where YOU capitalize. This is where having 20-30 listed at the same time comes to your advantage–you are able to bump up the price a bit and gain what traders refer to as “page dominance” – meaning the players you have listed will span multiple pages of search results. So for Muntari, I would try to win bids between 600-650, and list for between 800-850.
5) As players sell, continually replenish with new ones to keep the profit flowing.

Things to remember:

  •  Check the market prices daily and adjust accordingly
  •  To absolutely minimize your risk, search for players you can win around discard price.
  •  If you ever need to liquidize these players or if they dont seem to be selling as well as you would like (this method does require a bit of patience) you can always sell at lowest BIN for a minimal, if not zero, loss since you initially bought below market price
  •  If you have about 30 listed, hopefully you will be able to sell at least 3-5 per cycle–YMMV though. Like I said, patience is key. Don’t be too greedy or else your sell rate will decrease tremendously.
  •  The more popular the player, the more quickly he will sell. The trick is finding a player that is popular enough to sell consistently, but not TOO popular to the point that people are constantly outbidding you before you can make a bid.
  •  This is just one method of getting a continuous flow of profit going. Once you build up a more substantial amount of coins, you can try to combine it with other methods such as IF trading and what not.
  •  Let me know if this makes sense or if you have any questions I’m more than happy to help!

FIFA 15 Ultimate Team Guide :Defending Master

FIFA 15 Ultimate Team Guide :Defending Master

In FIFA 14, the defending system changed very drastically and although it has not changed as much this year, it has definitely gotten just a bit more difficult. With acceleration and pace becoming significantly more effective on attack, it is simply more difficult to defend. However, this guide will go over some key points which will help you defend much more efficiently.

Tackling Manually
Auto-Tackling has become much less effective in FIFA 15. In previous versions of the game, your player would automatically stick a foot out if an opponent was dribbling close past. Although this still happens occasionally in FIFA 15, it happens FAR less frequently. In order to counter these changes, you’ll need to be ready to hit the tackle button yourself. This doesn’t mean that you should spam the tackle button, but just be aware that you will need to manually initiate a tackle a lot more often in order to stop speedy runs. Also understand that this is something that will come naturally with a bit more practice, so you will undoubtedly get better as you play more FIFA 15.

You should focus more on containing your opponent and ensuring he doesn’t get too close to your penalty box than sprinting as fast as you can to get to him and steal the ball handily, as that is unlikely in FIFA 15. If you jockey the players with the ball and stay with them, they will probably dribble into another defender or take a touch that allows you to take the ball from them. If you pressure well, you’ll probably also be able to take advantage of lots of poor passes. You can sort of push into your opponent as you contain him and try to shove him off the ball (controls depend on your console/system) which is another thing to focus on.

The most important thing about containing is that your focus should be on deterring movement of your opponent, but also to prevent the shot. In FIFA 15, shots can be devastating if they are not blocked. So, if you really want to defend well you must learn to contain with the intention of cutting off shots.

On Formations
Lots of formations in FIFA 15 involve a central defensive midfielder. With fast breaks being incredibly effective in this game, it is very important for you to have a big, preferrably fast CDM that can break up attacks before they get to the heart of your defense. At that point, they will have reached full speed and it is significantly more difficult to stop them. I feel that a single CDM is more effective than two men staying back as with two you will notice a big gap between them that can be exploited. Another tip we’ve received is to change your CDM’s attacking setting: Go to Team Management > Instructions, and select your CDM. Change his “Attacking Support” to “Always stay back while attacking.”

Pass Anticipation
In conjunction with containing your opponent, trying to anticipate the passes your opponent will make is probably the most useful skill you can perfect in this game, or at least in the defending part of it. FIFA 15, like other recent versions of FIFA, is very passing focused. For many players, their entire game revolves around a solid passing game. Effective defending involves considering all of the passing options and lanes available for your opponent and closing off the most dangerous of them. It sounds like a lot, but just keep it in mind when you’re trying to get used to the new game and it should become second nature. You will also want to try to “figure out” your opponent and get a good idea of what he’s going to do. Most players seem to do the same thing in every situation, so try to watch for these patterns and take advantage when you notice them again.

General Tips
1)Use the right stick to change players faster
2)Maintain a goal-side advantage over your opponents
3)Be wary of skill moves
4)Be riskier with tackles when a counter-attack is possible
5)Be ready to switch players quick and move one back for cover, especially against fast teams
6)Recognize skillful players and isolate them whenever possible
7)Be patient!
